Not bad at all!

Thank you very much to all for your kind comments!

Dadster: this are not 3D printed figures. I made the original figure (or master) with FIMO Soft, then I made a mould using RTV silicone rubber and cast the copies in poliuretane resin.

Dear Cesar Paz

If that is the case they you deserve extravagant praise for the product. They are quite handsome and unlike more professional firms, actually look thin enough and in proportion to be from the 18th century (where almost everyone who carried a musket was semi-starved. The animation is also good and it looks like the guy is trying to bunch up in the cold Canadian (or European winter.)

Excellent job.

You are an inspiration. I am trying to sculpt my own figures for the Potsdam Giant Grenadiers of Frederick William I.

Even nicer painted up!

As for the Grenadiers, I am teaching myself basic techniques still.
